ALLERGIES

What are allergies?

  • Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, such as pollen, dust, pet dander, or a food that does not cause a reaction in most people.

  • The immune system produces antibodies. And when there is a particular allergen that the immune system does not recognize, your immune system's reaction can inflame your skin, sinuses, airways or digestive system. The severity of allergies varies from person to person and can range from a minor irritation to a life-threatening emergency. 

  • Allergies can affect your airways, sinuses, and nasal passages, skin, and the digestive system.
